This is a very unique opportunity to acquire a desirable development site including and set around a Grade II Listed former Hunting Lodge which was frequented by Winston Churchill and the Vanderbilts amongst others. The site, which measures just over 4 acres, allows for the renovation and conversion of the Lodge into 10 stylish dwellings and 24 new builds within the grounds, including detached, semi-detached and a courtyard/mews development. Melton Mowbray is a growing and thriving market town in North Leicestershire famous for its Hunting tradition, as well as its unique Pork Pies and Stilton Cheese. The town centre has a bustling mix of shopping from independent local shops to High Street brands. There are supermarkets including Tesco, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s, Aldi & Lidl, a good range of schooling including a 6th Form College and College of Further Education. The town has a busy market on Tuesdays and Saturdays along with the Cattle Market on a Tuesday bringing visitors from far and wide. Leisure facilities include a swimming baths, cinema, theatre, various gyms and a tennis club as well as an indoor bowling centre. There is a good mix of pubs, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Melton Mowbray is well placed for those commuting to Leicester, Nottingham, Loughborough and Grantham and is soon to have a long awaited bypass, which should be starting in 2020.

LOCATION



 



The site is approached via a private roadway with electronic security gates which sweeps through trees and over the brook. The site is situated to the left side of the roadway and is surrounded by mature trees of many varieties. There is an existing development of converted stables and cottages to the right had side of the lodge which were developed approx. 10 years ago. The Lodge will retain an open aspect to the front over the grounds and paddock land looking towards Nottingham Road.



 



The driveway, gates and other common areas will require the implementation of a management company to handle ongoing maintenance once developed.
